It's a special day today in UK, on this the 75th anniversary of VE (Victory in Europe) day.
Thinking today of all of those who fought in World War 2 and also of those who did not fight, but 'kept the home fires burning', in so many different ways. I can only imagine the joy that everyone felt when Victory in Europe was declared.
Today we are fighting a war of a very different kind. It's been just as cruel and our army is a very different one, clad in their PPE and using very different weapons on a silent, hidden and every bit as dangerous enemy. Sending warmest wishes to all of them too. Courage comes in many different packages.
And I hope my choice today unites both groups of people.
And it's this:
"Once we have a war there is only one thing to do. It must be won. For defeat brings worse things than any that can ever happen in war".
Have a good day everyone, and celebrate just being here today. 🙏🌺
